Neighbourhood Priorities

April 2017: Burglaries to sheds and outhouses in the Byker Bank area

What you told us:

Burglaries to sheds and outhouses in the rear yards, gardens and allotments of the Byker Bank area

What we are doing about it:

For a number of years Northumbria police has worked hard to reduce the number of burglaries in the area with success and we will continue to work with partner agencies such as the local authority to reduce the fear of burglary.

We have increased patrols in your area with officers from the Neighbourhood Policing Team as well as 24/7 response officers being deployed in the Byker Bank area at all hours of the day. Through Operation Moonlight and Operation Sunshine we are directly speaking to households where residents have left their property vulnerable and given them direct crime prevention advice. We are also actively targeting criminals who commit crime in Ouseburn.

Keeping you informed:

The Newcastle East Neighbourhood Policing Team will attend the next round of Ward meetings held by the local authority and information about these meetings can be found on either the Northumbria Police website or the Newcastle City Council website.
